The machine’s tracked undercarriage, fitted with heavy-duty rubber bonded pads, provides excellent stability and weight distribution minimising the negative effect of an uneven base. Track tension is assured by two grease pistons with a shock absorbing system.

Reliable Cat® C2.2 engine provides ample power and is EU Stage IIIb and U.S. Tier 4 Interim emissions compliant.

The electric heated screed is powered by an onboard generator with independent temperature control in all four sections. Three heating elements for each screed section ensure uniform heating over the entire screed plate.

The hoppers are hydraulically operated and independently controlled facilitating applications close to walls or other vertical objects. The asphalt mix is carried to the screed by a heavy-duty steel conveyor and is distributed by two independently controlled augers, with reversible rotation. Three automatic material feed sensors provide correct amount of material to the screed. Augers can be hydraulically raised to avoid obstacles, facilitate machine loading on trailer and assembly of the paving width reduction option group. Conveyor and augers are reversible.

The operator drives the paver from the platform positioned behind the screed. The console panel is fully equipped with comprehensive controls allowing a single operator to conveniently monitor all machine functions. The operator platform is fitted with an operator presence detector enabling machine functions when the operator is in the driving position.

The AP255E ensures excellent access to all machine parts requiring scheduled maintenance. Large access doors provide quick and easy inspection of main components.
